I just got an iPhone 5 and Nexus 4 on order. I will use the iPhone 5 as my personal phone. Too many benefits for ME. That doesn't mean they'll be for you. You should ignore everyone here and just do your own research ... ie: Figure out what services you use, and how well they integrate ... for instance, you can forget iMessage or iCloud on the iPhone, but you will get great Google integration on the Android ... more than iOS... some Google apps are on iOS too but the level of integration on Android is far more like Apple's iCloud on iOS. Then of course, apps ... do you have hundreds of dollars worth of apps on iOS or Android? That could be a factor. Anyways ... I'd also try and get some experience playing with the phones.
Took out the irellevant reasons for you
Removable battery is utter rubbish ... I have had Apple phones since they came out, and every one of them has outlasted the Android phones I've had (S, S2, Galaxy Nexus, S3 etc). Fast phone? So is the iPhone. 2GB Ram really doesn't matter on phones. More Ram means nothing unless the apps are using it and well written. Honestly, for the most part, it makes very little difference having 1 or 2 gb Ram on a phone.
I'm getting Nexus 4 and iPhone 5. I will have the best of both worlds. But I'll use the iPhone 5 as my main phone. Better overall user experience and higher grade 3rd party apps for the most part.
Dude I had an iPhone 4S and I started using it at 8am every day and by 3pm the battery was almost gone (19%). My Samsung Galaxy received the same amount of usage as my iPhone 4S did and when I get home at 5:00pm, I still have 58% battery left, so please don't try to tell me that the battery on the iPhone is great because everyone knows it is not.
As far as RAM memory goes, the more memory you have, the more apps you can have opened and the more multitasking you can do without suffering in performance.

1. The S3 from AT&T has 2GB of RAM...So you are wrong.
2. I didn't say the S3 did not support Android 4.2, YOU did. I said it comes with Android 4.1.1
3. Being able to remove the battery DOES matter.
4. Having an SD Card DOES matter
5. You are nothing but an Apple fanboy
